Twinfix Supports Mental Health Awareness Week with Focus on Outdoor Spaces

Twinfix showed its support for Mental Health Awareness Week by emphasizing the crucial role that outdoor spaces play in promoting mental well-being. Recognizing the positive impact of nature and fresh air on mental health, Twinfix is dedicated to creating nurturing environments that prioritize mental well-being in schools, workplaces, and public spaces.

Mental Health Awareness Week, is an annual campaign that raises awareness about mental health issues and encourages open conversations to reduce stigma. This year’s theme, Anxiety highlights the importance of connecting with nature for improved mental well-being.

Twinfix  understands the significance of outdoor spaces in supporting mental health. By providing covered areas such as outdoor classrooms, quiet spaces, and relaxation areas, Twinfix enables individuals to connect with nature and experience the restorative benefits of fresh air, sunlight, and green surroundings. These spaces offer students, employees, and the public an opportunity to take a break, find respite, and rejuvenate their mental and emotional states.

“Sarah Kench, Director at Twinfix, stated, “We are proud to support Mental Health Awareness Week and emphasise the vital role of outdoor spaces in nurturing mental well-being. Our canopies create sheltered areas that blend seamlessly with nature, enabling people to experience the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors. By incorporating natural light, biophilic design elements, and sustainable materials, we strive to create environments that prioritize mental health and foster a sense of tranquility.”

As part of their efforts to support Mental Health Awareness Week, the Directors at Twinfix attended a Mental Health Awareness Course hosted by So Coach Training, a Cheshire-based Training Provider. Following the successful completion, they have since opened this course up to the rest of the workforce to attend next month.

In addition to promoting mental well-being, Twinfix places a strong focus on sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Their canopies are designed with energy-efficient features and incorporate recyclable materials, aligning with their commitment to environmental responsibility.
